The blind leading the deaf

The more I think of what Stephen Hawking has been saying, the more I am at a loss as to why he is so far from the truth! What does he see when he looks up? An equation? Has he ever seen a sunset and marvelled at the beauty of it rather than thinking that it is merely light passing through dust particles? I am not just getting at him. I feel sadness about the power of a theory which is blind to the beauty of creation.
